    Snoop Dogg has had another run-in with European authorities. The news agency ANSA said the rapper was stopped on Saturday by financial police in southern Italy while carrying $422,000 in cash, well above the limit that can legally be transported across European Union borders without being declared.

    Snoop Dogg, who has been touring Europe after releasing the album Bush earlier this year, will have to pay a fine, said Andrea Parisi, his lawyer.

    “We clarified everything from a legal point of view,” Parisi told Reuters on Saturday. “The money came from concerts he had performed around Europe. There was no crime; it was just an administrative infraction.”

    Half of the cash was given back to Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, while the other half was being held by Italian authorities until the amount of the fine was determined, Parisi said.

    The incident comes less than a week after Snoop Dogg was briefly stopped in Sweden, on suspicion of drug use, and afterwards claimed that he had been a victim of racial profiling.

    The rapper was questioned and tested for suspected drug use north of the capital. Authorities said test results would not be available for some time.

    Snoop Dogg played in Calabria on Friday night, and was scheduled to perform on Sunday at the Kendal Calling Festival in Britain.

    The rapper has repeated convictions for possession of marijuana. In July 2012, he was banned from entering Norway for two years after being found in possession of eight grams of the drug, as well nearly £18,000 ($28,119) of Norwegian currency.

    Will the cops keep his $150K safely locked up in the evidence room? When will Snoop get the $100K back?

    What pisses me off is that snoop whines about racial profiling.

    They aren't pulling you over because you're black. They're pulling you over because all you talk about is smoking weed and killing people.

    Typical liberal who never met a welfare program he didn't want whitey to pay for.... But then gets paid in cash to avoid paying his share.

    He isn't the only performer that smokes lots of it. His songs aren't about killing people anymore since he got off for killing someone. :snicker: Wish someone would pull him over about those braids and hair elastic balls he wears.
